If you've seen the music video to Beyoncé's #1 hit, Single Ladies, then you've been captivated by the fierce red head, Ashley Everett, who serves as Beyonce’s lead dancer and dance captain. Since the age of 17, Ashley has played an intricate role in the creative process of everything Beyonce, from her music videos such as Single Ladies & Who Runs The World (Girls) and commercials like H&M and Pepsi, to her live performances and world tours I Am, The Beyoncé Experience and The Mrs. Carter World Tour. She has performed on every major stage from the GRAMMY Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and World Music Awards to Glatonsbury and the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII.
Having danced with Beyoncé for the last 8 years has opened doors for Ashley to share the stage with other artists such as Robin Thicke, Usher, Ciara, Ne-Yo, LaToya Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and the legendary Tina Turner. She's also been featured on television shows such as The X-Factor USA, Shake It Up on Disney, Glee on Fox and most recently, the pilot episode of VH1's newest drama, Hit The Floor.
Ashley's career began while she was taking classes at Alvin Ailey and dancing with the Radio City Rockettes. From there, she was scouted out by Beyonce's choreographer, Frank Gatson, and invited to tour with the superstar. Coincidentally, Ashley was one of the 12 dancers that were accepted into Julliard's Dance program that semester, and while attending the performing arts college was a lifelong dream, she decided to stay on tour with Beyoncé, which has led to her having the successful career that she currently has.
Not long after touring the world with Beyoncé and Jay-Z on the historic On The Run stadium tour (Summer 2014), Ashley was called by Usher to join his #URXTOUR. With an extensive resume, ever-growing, loyal following and increased media presence (FOX News, Essence Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Jet Magazine, Sister 2 Sister Magazine, Curly Nikki, Dance Spirit Magazine, etc.), Ashley continues to show us why she's every star's favorite leading lady.
